Who is telling the truth about the safety of GMOs in our food?

Guest:  Howard Vlieger, Crop and Livestock Nutrition Advisor

There have been many studies as to the safety of genetically modified organisms in our food.  Some studies say GMO foods are safe, others say they are not safe.

The question of GMO safety has become an industrial War of the Truths, with just about everything you can possibly imagine at stake.

When I first met Howard Vlieger at a Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance conference in Bastrop, Texas, it did not take very long to figure out which truth he represented.

Having met him, and listened to him speak out against GMOs, it did not surprise me when a study he commissioned crossed my desk entitled:  “A  long-term toxicology study on pigs fed a combined genetically modified (GM) soy and (GM) maize diet.”  What did surprise me, however, was what the study claimed about the long-term feeding of GMO foods to pigs.  Listen to some of the claims from report’s “Abstract”…

“The GM diet was associated with gastric and uterine differences in pigs.”

“GM-fed pigs had uteri that were 25% heavier than non-GMO fed pigs.”

“GM-fed pigs had a higher-rate of severe stomach inflammation with a rate of 32% of GM-fed pigs compared to 12% for non-GMO-fed pigs.”

“The severe stomach inflammation was worse in GM-fed males compared to non-GM fed males by a factor of 4.0, and GM-fed females compared to non-GM fed females by a factor of 2.2.”

Given the scientific principles upon which this study was designed, and the credentials of those who conducted the study, and the credentials of  peers who reviewed the study, it becomes very difficult to dismiss the study as purely partisan.  Yet many do.

This from the blog BIOtechNOW:  “It (the study) reaches conclusions that are diametrically opposed to the great preponderance of the scientific evidence gathered from hundreds of independent food and feed safety studies that found no difference in between animals fed GMO or non-GMO diets.”
